Event description

Description

Hard-working North East bass player John Pope has played with artists across the spectrum of modern music, from folk songsters to free improv legends to genuine pop stars. But jazz is his creative home turf. Leading a band of all-star Northern musicians, John’s music draws on the history of 60s avant-jazz and hard-bop, but with a modern sensibility grounded in the adventurous sounds of today’s European jazz scene. A mix of original tunes and carefully-curated cover material from artists as diverse as Tom Waits, Ornette Coleman and Kurt Weill, played with hard-swinging ferocity and playful openness. The John Pope Quintet kicks up a joyful racket full of rewards for the adventurous listener.
